Podcast Ep. 208: Goodbye, Stephen Hawking

In our latest podcast, Jessica and I discussed the past week in politics and atheism.

We talked about:

— Congressional Republicans are trying to stop the Navy from appointing a Humanist Chaplain. (30:48)

— The Kansas commissioner who told atheists to go to Hell. (41:43)

— An Alabama Republican legislator doesn’t want to arm teachers (yay) because most of them are women (wut). (45:23)
